So, I think we're going to have a booth at SCALE this year.  Josh has
volunteered to take a leadership role in that -- so I'm going to play
SCALE cheerleader.  Which means, SUBMIT ABSTRACTS! :)

It's February, and unlikely that the weather is better where you are
than it is going to be in LA.  Southwest flies to LAX so it means you
can probably get a cheap flight.  You can walk to the hotel from LAX[1].
The conference is on the weekend.

I think it would be very cool to have a set of Inkscape presentations.
Forward this to your GIMP/Blender/Scribus friends, perhaps we can get a
Linux Graphics track :)

SCALE is a cool conference, small and laid back.  Still a volunteer run
thing, so the registration fee isn't crazy.  But, every year the
speakers have gotten better, and the overall quality has gone up.  I
don't expect this year to be different.


[1] - Not that I would recommend this.  The traffic around LAX is awful,
so unless you're invincible to cars, take the hotel shuttle.
